Today, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) released an annual update to the Hospital Cost Report Public Use File (PUF) and released, for the first time, the Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) Cost Report PUF.​ These PUFs contain data for 2014-2018.​

These products were developed using the Healthcare Cost Report Information System (HCRIS) and provide stakeholders with a curated set of variables in a user-friendly format (e.g., more descriptive variable names).​ Each PUF is organized at the hospital or facility level and includes select measures such as hospital or facility characteristics, utilization measures, cost and charges by cost center (in total and for Medicare), Medicare settlement data, and financial statement data.

To view the Hospital Cost Report PUF, please visit: https://data.cms.gov/provider-compliance/cost-report/hospital-provider-cost-report.
